CalFlowers held its biennial Member Meetings in August. Members were treated to a Member Appreciation Lunch where they could catch up with other members from the area. Thanks to FedEx for sponsoring the Member Appreciation lunches again this year.
The meetings were a big success with a combined total of 127 attendees for the three meeting locations. Michael LoBue, CalFlowers CEO, kicked off each meeting with a state of the Association report that included goals for 2016/2017 and a review of how the Association is doing.
Attendees were then invited to participate in two round table discussions of their choice. Each session went for 20 minutes and the topics were: 2017 Fun ‘N Sun; Transportation and Related Issues; and Promotions & Marketing. Please contact Monnaie Pepin (email@example.com) if you wish the full list of topics discussed across all three meetings; the highlights are:
Promotions & Programs:
Fun 'N Sun:
Alaska Airlines raffled off two round trip tickets at each location and CalFlowers gave a $50 gift card to three lucky members for participating in a short survey.
The Member Meetings ended with a hour long vendor reception where attendees meet face to face with our Associate Service Members to discuss business and get more information on their services.
